Central Scotland in Fracking Firing Line

A staggering four million people in Scotland live in a viable fracking zone, new Scottish Parliament figures have revealed.

3,910,000 people, or 73% of the population, live in areas where companies could bid for licences to engage in fracking activity.

With up to 87% of people in Scotland against fracking, Mark Griffin MSP has once again called on the Scottish Government to end their moratorium and support an outright ban.

Mark said:

"Communities in Central Scotland are fertile ground for fracking activities and therefore in the direct firing line of big companies seeking licences

"The Scottish Government have dragged their feet on fracking for far too long. It is time they take a firm stance.

"I fully support my colleague Claudia Beamish MSP's bid to enforce an outright ban through a Members' Bill.

"People have made their voices heard - they do not want these unnecessary activities taking place on their doorstep; they want to protect the environment, the air we breathe, and the water we drink."
